Mural Helps to Make a 'Paws'itive Impact
Artists from Chenango Valley and Whitney Point Central School Districts are working with Broome County Legislator Cindy O'Brien to help beautify  a fence at the Broome County Dog Shelter.
 
 “I think it’s great that they all give back to their community," said Cindy O’Brien. "It gives them an even greater sense of community pride."
 
This is what the mural looked like to start:
old fence
 
With a bit of paint and some helping hands, progress has been made in the creation of a mural featuring fun cartoon characters (including people, dogs, and other animals) and a "welcome" display.
 
 “I enjoyed working on the mural last year at the school and, of course, I love dogs -- so I thought this would be a great combination,” said Chenango Valley High School student Kayla Ferris.
